All patients with a stoma are at risk of developing some degree of parastomal herniation given enough follow-up time. Based on current evidence, preventive measures are strongly advised to minimise the incidence of a parastomal hernia forming. This article explores the evidence for consistency in care and management of parastomal hernia, focusing on the development of a risk assessment tool, taking into consideration the patient's and the nurse's perspective.
